This is not a photograph of my friend Scott from San Francisco. It's a picture of Gene Simmons, who co-founded KISS more than 32 years ago. I never much cared for KISS, though I was definitely drawn to the Simmons tongue thing. But that was during my raging hormonal adolescence stage, and even at age 12, I knew I did not want to have sex with this freak.
Okay, David. Connect the dots already ...
So Scott called me from the Burbank airport yesterday with a great idea for Upright & Stowed called "Celebrity Travel Sightings." It's a series that will feature your and my stories of brushes with fame while on the road. Here's how it works: When you have a celebrity travel sighting, e-mail or text me immediately, and together we'll craft a story for the burgeoning world of Upright & Stowed readers.
Get this: Scott caught his glimpse of Gene Simmons at the Burbank airport (code: BUR) ... getting his shoes spit-shined. Musta been quite a site. Though apparently no tongues were used.
Just in case you're wondering, Scott is the lucky center in this shot. Steve is on the right ... his BF. Yours truly is wearing the always safe color classic: Sunkist Orange. The location is pretty obvious: The Pier Dance, NYC.
